DC Comics Announces Spin-Off ‘The Sandman Universe: Nightmare Country’

Sandman is returning in the DC Comics Black Label title ‘The Sandman Universe: Nightmare Country,’ which will explore the United States in a horror-themed series by comic book writer James Tynion IV and artist Lisandro Estherren with a special guest artist for each issue.
“The Corinthian walks the Earth again,” DC Universe explained. “One of Dream’s greatest nightmares, and a proven serial killer when set free in the past, letting him loose on the world is a dangerous choice… but a necessary one, because there is another nightmare walking America that was not born in the Dreaming—a monster that Dream, lord of all nightmares, did not make. What follows is a dark cat and mouse game, a net of nightmares that catches not just dreams but the people who dream them, in a journey that crosses all the most terrifying corners of America.”
Tynion expressed his excitement for the series saying, “The Sandman is the series that made me want to become a comic book writer.”
“Growing up, I loved reading the comics about costumed heroes and villains, but the stories that I kept wanting to put to paper lived in many genres, and I had convinced myself that the only place you could get away with that was in prose,” he continued. “It wasn’t until early high school when I got my hands on the first volumes of Sandman that I saw the immensity of what was possible in a comic book, and I became determined to spend my life making comics.”
Sandman will also face off against two new adversaries called Mr. Agony and Mr. Ecstasy. The two have disturbing, toothy grins and are not afraid to kill anyone in their path.
DC Universe also released a first look of the cover by Reiko Murakami:

The series is to launch on April 12, 2022.
